Facebook announced it will organize its F8 developer conference in a virtual, single-day event on June 2, 2021.
The virtual stage called F8 Refresh will be open to developers across the world and live streamed on Facebook for Developers page.
F8 attracted more than 5,000 people during its in-person format. Facebook last year cancelled its prestigious F8 developer conference in San Jose on May 5-6.
“F8 has always brought together an incredible community of people who are building, innovating, and looking for what’s next,” Facebook said in a statement.
“Over the last year, our community of developers enabled growth for businesses of all sizes to adapt to a changed world and accelerate their digital transformation,” Facebook said.
There would be no keynote from Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg this year.
F8 Refresh will feature the latest product tools to help developers build across its family of apps, as well as technical deep-dive sessions, demos, and panels.
